As you will recall, the head of Advertising.com, Lynda Clarizio, has just been promoted to run AOL's broader ad-network group, Platform A. Lynda is taking the place of Curt Viebranz, who got canned last Friday.
Lynda's first order of business, one source says, is to integrate Tacoda, Quigo, and other recent acquisitions into Advertising.com. Advertising.com has been run as a stand-alone subsidiary, with a separate ad sales force from AOL's (which caused some friction). Our tipster… Continue

Mediapost - by Wendy Davis
AOL is hemorrhaging ad executives, but that hasn't stopped the company from agreeing to pay $850 million to acquire social networking site Bebo.
In a deal announced this morning, AOL said it has agreed to purchase the 3-year-old U.K.-based site, which claims 40 million worldwide members. Factoring in the number of people using its instant messaging services, AOL now can say its social network reaches 80 million unique users… Continue

Looking out my window this morning here in East Aurora, NY (and wondering when Spring will officially arrive!) a particular quote comes to mind:
“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. ”
Charles L. Allen
Seemed apprpriate for not only the current weather and climate, but also for those of us in Sales and Recruiting.
Food for… Continue

Prime beef that is! What I mean by prime beef is those individuals whose talents and skills exceed the average person in the market, and quite frankly companies are finding them in short supply. Not because they don’t exist, but because a lot of companies aren’t prepared to pay the higher price for the level of talent they desire, and as we all know in a supply and demand world if you can’t pay the market price for the goods then you need to look at different goods. Can you say Grade… Continue

In a business world where communication is key, via websites, blogs, newletters, RSS feeds etc, recruiters are now more accountable than ever - not just to the companies that they provide a service for but also for candidates that they are interacting with every day. I therefore have a a nice question for all you recruiters out there that will get you thinking........ "Do you know who your clients are?"
In a sweepingly broad statement, recruitment organisations sit in two… Continue

During my time at Monster I was able to actually see the results of our Super Bowl ad traffic, whether it was good
or not so good
. But I've always wondered how much Super Bowl commercials really impacted other job board's traffic. Moreover what other initiatives they utilize to maintain the growing need for more job seeker eyeballs after the commercial… Continue

Uncle Sam, once again, is not happy with our current one weekend a month (Army reserve status)
arrangement so he's called me back into the active Army for a period of 1 year... or whenever he feels like sending me home.
I started my Army career on active duty back in '89, went into the Army reserves in '93 and am now inching ever so slowly to my 20 year mark. I'll be stateside (Fort Benning,… Continue

Close your eyes. Think of the perfect mate. Are you done? Close your eyes again. Think some more. How long is your list of requirements of the perfect mate? Are there five of them? Ten? Perhaps, you have twenty. Think about your list again. Are each of those really requirements of your ideal mate? Or, are those desired attributes? On which items are you willing to be flexible? For example, some people say the religion of their mate is a requirement while height is only desired. For others, it… Continue

I'm an out of work pastor with lots of administrative and management experience. I suppose I should more precisely say that I'm an entrepreneur starting something new and paying the bills is still important. Which means I need steady income from a real job. Nearly all of my work experience is in the non-profit world. Back in the day, I did co-manage a McDonald's restaurant, worked in PR for the American Heart Association, and have done temp work on and off for years.
I sure would… Continue

I finally discovered a background check company called easybackgroundchecks that has reasonable packaging prices, is very easy to use, and has very good customer support.
The other beauty about this service is that they guarantee drug test results within 24 hours from the time the candidate left the lab facility. Most companies take 3 days to produce these results.

In Sales (as in Recruiting) we must ALWAYS be ready to adapt to each unique individual and situation we’re working with.
Look for opportunities to be flexible on the fly!

Remember that jingle for the Klondike Bar? “Oh what would you do ooh ooh for a Klondike Bar?” I find myself asking the same question when it comes to finding to attracting passive candidates. I still feel the best lead is one that a colleague or business partner can give me. As long as you have a first and last name, there are so many avenues to find contact information for those candidates including LinkedIn and ZoomInfo. If you use Mozilla Firefox there is also another great way to do a… Continue
